Cape Town - SuperSport United captain Thabo September said the extended mid-term break has not been ideal, especially after the club returned to winning ways at the end of 2014.

Before the break Matsatsantsa moved up to the 11th position in the league standings and while they could have been higher up, September feels the progress which had been made was more than satisfactory under the circumstances. The big fear at this juncture is that momentum might be lost.

"It has been a good needed recess but too long. I can't wait to get back on the field as we ended our season on a good note," September told his club’s website.

"We deservedly beat Chippa United in our last match of the year away in Port Elizabeth and that certainly boosted the team’s confidence going forward," he added.

SuperSport United are no longer in the position to challenge for the league title this season, which still seemed like a realistic prospect when Gordon Igesund had just taken over at the helm.

However, there is still a considerable amount to play for during this campaign and September is under no illusions about the enormity of the task which lies ahead.

"We have a lot of work ahead of us," said the eager September, who is now thinking beyond the 2014/15 campaign.

"The most exciting news is that we have secured the services of Kingston Nkhatha for next season and that showed our intentions for next season. 

"He is a great team player and will give us so much in his department (forward). He is a quality player and he is one of the best players in the PSL if one looks at his work rate."
